CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Ryan J. Polk

Ivan Sarkissian has a unique approach to resolving his clients’ legal issues.  As a skilled litigator and trial lawyer, Ivan is aggressive, innovative, and dedicated to prosecuting even the most complicated cases.  However, Ivan also understands the vagrancies of litigation and the pressure it puts on clients.  He is equally comfortable litigating “bet the company cases, or navigating delicate business relationships.”

Throughout my case Kama has wowed me time and time again. She’s always come up with new creative ways to resolve problems and diffuse volatile situations. She always was looking out for me and my daughter’s best interest since day 1. Me being a first time father had many questions and new circumstances that I’d never encountered. Kama always had an excellent answer or solution. Throughout the past 2 years Kama has represented me she has become a good friend and a powerful ally. – James

Great Lawyer

Kama was great with my whole case. She focused on everything we had talked about and did her absolute best to help me. She was always willing to listen and go the extra mile to help. – Amanda

Don’t hesitate, get the best

Kama is an amazing lawyer with the backing of a well established and professional group. She’s a great listener with compassion but clearly has the fortitude to go the extra mile with you in whatever circumstances. Clearly, I wouldn’t want to be on the opposite side of the table in mediation or in court. Direct, reasonable in cost, flexible, knowledgeable and very experienced. Wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. – Catherine

Custody Case

Kama is a very professional attorney and she knows the business. She was successful in achieving all the goals that I set forth. I would recommend(I have already) her to anyone in need of this type of legal service. – David

Kama and her team are excellent. She helped me through my difficult divorce situation by providing direction while being understanding and compassionate.

Best Divorce Lawyer EVER!!!:

A Difficult Path made Easier:

“Kama was always thinking outside the box. Compassionate, empathetic, but very quick to draw the line between fair and unreasonable when dealing with the other party. Kama and her seasoned team kept me informed with all developments along the way. I liked the fact that her staff would email me a detailed list as to what documentation I would need to gather up. In addition I liked the fact that Kama is very cost conscious and would do a lot of things to mitigate my exposure to great expense by using PL’s and LA’s staff where she could. At times she would allow me to do the initial foot work at minimal or no cost. But most importantly and above all Kama treated me with respect and as a friend!!! The speed in which this case was handled from start to finish, must have set records in this State and I was pleased with the outcome.” – Gordon

Her counsel and guidance were spot on, while at the same time, her solace for the pain I was going through helped me make it through. I would readily recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in such a difficult position. She is the best.” – Dan O.

“Kama is a committed professional lawyer, with skilled judgment and accurate knowledge and presence in the civil court room. She understood, navigated and advised me of my legal rights and made me aware of the legal pros and cons of the many complex and multi-faceted decisions I would have to make, and what they really meant for me and my children during my divorce. I have great trust and confidence Kama will do the same for you.” – Deborah B.
